To make this route, the traveler must take the Caribbean trunk road, heading north, passing the bridge over the Palomino River, from where the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta can be seen and where the departmental boundary of Magdalena and La Guajira is located. The road is well paved, well signposted and in perfect safety conditions.
On both sides of the road, there are gas stations, food stops, hotels, restaurants and several small houses ideal to stock up on supplies for the next trip.
Transportation on Riohacha’s main roads is provided by collective service cabs, which are either shared fares or pay-per-stand fares. In addition, individual cabs are inexpensive because of the short distances involved.
